In my next installment of gift guides for Christmas, we’re going to bring it back to the most important person in the house – mama! And I thought seeing as essentially, we are all absolutely knackered at this (or any) time of year that this gift guide for mum would be centered around one thing and one thing only – precious sleep! So, for every mum who is feeling seriously tired out there, if you don’t know what to get us…I’ve teamed up with Amara.com in this gift guide which can act as your guiding light:
Total darkness and some decent shut eye
Time to pay back us mamas for all those hours of sleep stolen away from us. Give mama a peaceful night’s sleep with this gorge and uber luxe silk eye mask from Sara Miller. They are available in four designs; flamingos, swans, birds and butterflies but as you can see, I’m partial to a bit of flamingo.
Some pyjamas worth sleeping in (because she’s worth it!)
Come on, mum needs to get out of that craggy t-shirt and moth-hole infested hareem pants combo and into some proper sleepwear! OK, so it will probably end up getting encrusted with milky spit up and Rice Krispies on day one, but hopefully the floral pattern of these lovely PsJ from Joules will cunningly hide those misdemeanours.
A calming aroma in a candle
A little night music in a hand poured candle, with heady notes of powder, iris and amber at the heart of this fragrance, and infused with a rich musk base and a touch of elemi on top. This Bella Freud candle is probably the most luxurious way mum will ever get rid of that lingering nappy smell in the house.
An insanely comfy bathrobe
Make mum feel like she’s floating on a Philedelphia cloud, or perhaps turned into a lovely squidgy marshmallow in this super snugly bathrobe from UGG which will enable her to transfer from bath to bed seamlessly after a hard day of mumming it.
Price: Was £120, now £96
Some slippers that will make her feet feel like she is in bed even when she’s not
Seriously sumptuous luxury courtsey of these Sheepy slipper boots from Ruby + Ed is basically what every mum desires when she stumbles in the door. Perfect for making her feel like she is horizontal even when bed time feels like a painfully long time away.
A seriously fluffy hot water bottle
You can see a theme emerging here can’t you? Basically when it comes to sleep, the fluffier the better – so forget those horrid knit covered water bottles us sleep deprived mums need a faux fur one! Chinchilla style. And this one will do the trick nicely.
Goodness I’m feeling sleepy writing this! OK, it may not bring back the endless hours of sleep stolen from mum, but at least these gifts could go some way in making up for the sleep deprivation.
